DVD tray will not open on my Toshiba DVR620KU


Googled this for two days with no success! Finally, out of despiration I took the screwdriver to the top cover. (four screws in the back, and two screws on each side) Lifted up the rear section of the cover which the released the front for removal. The input pc board is right on top of the dvd tray so little could be seen, so I removed the screws and clips holding the pc board. Make sure that you you disconnect the power before doing this however. Once you have removed the three screws, (two of which have attached grounding clips) you will need to disconnect the HDMI cable which plugs into the back of the board if you had not already done so. Now carefully plug the unit back into ac power, and while holding the board in your hand careful not to allow it to touch anything,press the open button on the front of the unit, and as you move the board slightly while pressing the button, the tray mechanism will start to try to release. Press the button several times till the tray opens completely and stops. Now comes the tricky part: Unplug the AC power plug while the tray remains open. (Otherwise the tray may close again and you'll have to go through the wiggle routine again to get it to open) Once it is open, remove the DVD Disk if there is one in there. OK, so now if you have followed these instructions so far the tray is open and empty, and there is no power to the unit, you can begin reassembly. Put the three screws and two clips back into the PC board loosely at first till you have all three started, then proceed to tighten each one. Replug the cable into the back of the PC board and then replace the top cover and the screws following the same procedure. Plug the unit back into the AC receptacle, and turn the unit on, then press the open/close button, and the tray should open and close as normal. I think what caused the problem to begin with is that I had left a DVD disc in the player for an extended period of time in the start play mode, and it either jumbled the programming or damaged the disc. I have not tried to put the original disk back in the unit to find out! I want to use it for awhile first!

How do I make player JVC XV-S300 region free.For years it worked fine,but all of a sudden it will not accept different codes. Please help, and many thanks!


hi,
Try the following to make your dvd player region free

1. Make sure there is no Disc in the tray.
2. Shut off the unit and unplug it from the AC outlet.
3. Press and Hold the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys, simultaneously on the player and not the remote control.
4. While holding these keys, plug the AC cord back into the outlet. (TEST and CPU ver# will appear on the display)
5. Release the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys.
6. Press DVD Menu twice on the remote.
7. When the display reads s000 5858 use the up and down buttons to change the 000 to 02E.
8. Using the Left and Right arrow buttons, change the last four digits until they read 0000 for Region Free, 0101 for Region 1, 0202 for Region 2 or 0404 for Region 4.
9. Press Enter on the player.
10. Press Standby and wait 5 seconds.
11. Press Standby again. Your player is now set to the region you requested. If you find some titles do not play on the region 0 setting, you may have to hard select the appropriate region.
ok

PS I would also suggest that onec you have it working, you might want to blow out the tray mechanism with an air cleaner spray.
